What You Can Expect

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Board your luxury coach, and travel from Rome to Tuscany with its scenic, rolling hills. Your first stop is Montepulciano, a town renowned for its fine wine and views. The Renaissance hilltown is best-known for its production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a full-bodied red wine. Learn about it on a walking tour, and discover highlights such as the Florence-style clock tower, the cathedral with its yet-to-be-finished façade, medieval wine cellars and the old town walls.

After a break for photos, travel further into Tuscany to explore the area around Montalcino. Step inside Sant’ Antimo Abbey, and then soak up the vistas that stretch beyond the vineyards.

Hear how the local vineyards produce the acclaimed Brunello di Montepulciano wine, and then sample a glass for yourself over a 3-course lunch at a local farm. In traditional Tuscan style, the menu features fresh farm-grown produce as well as a selection of local wine.

From the farm, travel on to Pienza, one of the region’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, enjoy up to 45 minutes of free time to explore. The layout of the town was created by Pope Pius II, who wanted to change the look of his birth town. Admire the historic center, which stays true to the pope’s vision, and gaze at the fine architecture that abounds. If you are a fan of food, check the shops for pecorino cheese, arguably Pienza’s most prized product.

Your day trip finishes with your coach journey back from Tuscany to Rome.

The trip was fantastic. Since we do not rent cars and drive around Tuscany, it is a great way to see the towns that are not easily accessible. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. I would take this tour again.

We thoroughly enjoyed this one-day tour, led by Jonathan. As an American who has lived in Rome for many years, Jon relayed history and culture and the land in a way that showed his love of and respect for Italy, as well as a great sense of humor. This was a great addition to our Rome visit, providing a relaxing day out of the city and the opportunity to soak in some beautiful countryside and wine!. We would have liked to have explored each stop a little more, but the tour made the most of 12 hours and we highly recommend it.
